The interest of German writers and readers in the Western Hemisphere dates back to the earliest narratives of the transatlantic Encounter. One of the first Latin editions of the Columbus letter was printed at Basel in 1493, and a German translation appeared in print in 1497. By the late sixteenth century, German publishers were issuing American travel narratives in impressive series. The biological and mineral resources of the Americas had a substantial impact on German science, and the...

The first press in Argentina appeared in Córdoba in 1764, brought by the Jesuits to serve the University there. It lasted only until the expulsion of the Jesuits in 1767. It would not be until 1780 that printing in the viceroyalty of Rio de la Plata would begin again, this time in Buenos Aires. The JCB holds no fewer than 20 imprints from this press printed prior to 1791. During the wars of independence, the Buenos Aires press was the principal voice of the Republican forces, chiefly through...

While some ephemeral printing appeared in Chile at an earlier date, the first printing press arrived there fairly late, relative to other parts of Latin America. Towards the end of 1811, Mateo Hoevel imported a press from New York, and that press is seen as the first in Chile, producing Chile's first periodical, the Aurora de Chile. The JCB holds a complete run of this pioneering periodical, along with many other unique items. http://archive.org/details/jcbspanishamerica

The Philippines are included within this collection since during the colonial period the islands were administered from Mexico. Manila's first press began in 1593, and was thus the third city in the Spanish overs eas empire to have a press. As with the other two, Mexico and Peru, much of the early output consisted of doctrinal works, often in indigenous languages. The earliest Manila imprint held by the JCB is Arte y reglas de la lengua Tagala printed in 1610....

The call to convent life drew women throughout the early modern Spanish world, from Madrid to Mexico City to Manila. For all the strictures that convents placed upon their inhabitants, they also gave women opportunities to pursue vocations of the spirit and of the mind. Within convent walls, Teresa of Ávila inaugurated her groundbreaking religious reform, Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz composed some of the most ingenious poems in the Spanish language, and innumerable women wrote powerful accounts...
